The 2014 research priority setting process is underway. Ontario low-acreage and specialty crop growers are encouraged to provide feedback at the link below to ensure the needs of this industry are captured in research programs. A list of priorities from all sectors is used to align provincial research programs with the needs of the industry. For field vegetables, the Low-Acreage and Specialty Crop Report captures priorities for cucurbit crops (melons, pumpkins, squash, cucumbers), eggplant, peppers, sugarbeets, table beets, and other low acreage or specialty vegetables.
If you grow one of the crops listed, or other low acreage or specialty vegetables, please take a few minutes to provide your feedback at the following link on or before May 22, 2014: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/N66ZHFZ
Feedback is also being sought from other specialty crop growers. See ONspecialtycrops for details.
